Puerto de la Cruz Christmas Fair 2020-2021

UPDATE: The Health Department ordered the closure of the Christmas Fair in the tourist city just five days after its inauguration 

The esplanade of the pier will host attractions, tombolas and bus bars until January 10

Puerto de la Cruz council has "all the necessary authorizations" to be able to open the main Christmas fair in the north of Tenerife, which has a strict capacity control and continuous cleaning and disinfection protocols to try to guarantee the safety of visitors. 

The esplanade of the pier houses 24 stalls and attractions that bring light, color and fun in difficult times; they employ more than 90 people, and offer hope for the future to 22 families of fairgrounds from Tenerife, Logroño, Seville, Jaén, Valencia or Alicante. Its opening hours will be, at least while the current curfew lasts, from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. 

To access the Puerto fair it is necessary to download a free ticket through a QR code and provide the personal and contact information of the attendees, both adults and children. Capacity is controlled, limited to 300 people in an outdoor space of about 11,000 square meters. At the entrance, the temperature of all visitors is taken and they are invited to disinfect their hands.
